Excel Online Synchronization

Andrew Close 20 Reputation points

I have a shared Excel spreadsheet and I'm concerned about it staying synchronized. If everyone is using Excel Online then there is not concern but if some users are choosing the "Open in Desktop App" option and editing locally do I have to worry about changes being lost?

    If the user select Open from Desktop also sync Workbooks as the same as open in Excel online.
